san francisco, style, fashion, travel, lifestyle curated by Ariel Tzu-Chi

Fashion is about projecting where you're going in life.

Therefore, life is fashion, fashion is style.

That's the lifestyle I am producing. 
 

風尚是一種生活品味的投射

因此生活即是風尚,風尚便是品味

這就是我想實踐的生活方式

Imitation Game


Having this perfect brown coat sitting in my closet for about an year, I finally have the guts to sport this piece from my grandmother's wardrobe. It is perfect for menswear-inspired looks for its oversized shape and unisex design. However, I have decided to practice it with a feminine approach - never play the safe card I am. I want to create a gentle and sophisticated look that's not overly girly yet precisely expressing my favorite concept of androgyny. I guess I was thinking a modern 40s.

Fashion is an imitation game - trends are recyclable and icons are overrated. People nowadays are too frenetic to find any sort of stability, as if we don't batter ourselves in some sort of categories, we lost the definition of who we are. I think personality can be attributed through experiences. In order to becoming somebody, we have to go through being distorted and confused, and eventually we know ourselves more and more. Imitate to grow, not to copy; it's a waste of life.

去年回台灣時從阿嬤的衣櫃裡帶了這件大衣,過了一年才拿出來穿。正咖啡色的色調和寬鬆的剪裁非常適合時尚男子的穿搭,可是我想穿出適合它的知性女子特質,同時又不失個性的帥氣,我想要很流暢舒服的剛柔並濟。想要一點點四零年代的摩登樣子。

時尚是一種模仿遊戲,流行總是不斷回歸,而時尚指標又過於氾濫。我覺得現代人好像太喜歡分類了,如果沒有類別或團體彷彿就會失去方向。人的性格是能從經驗中不斷塑形,必須經歷一些動盪與未知才能逐漸明白自己是什麼樣子,隨波逐流,終究是會支離破碎的。從模仿開始是為了進步,並非只是相像就可以了,別浪費「存在」這麼珍貴的事情。
